Ristorante Rumari

1826 S Coast Highway
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Ristorante Rumari is Laguna’s oldest Italian restaurant that has been operating since 1987. The restaurant serves Classic Italian and Mediterranean Cuisine, affectionately referred to as ‘Italian Soul Food.’

All the recipes are family recipes from the famiglia Crivello of Sicily. The Crivello family still has their beloved matriarch in the kitchen (Mamma Bina) preparing cannoli for their guests, and Papa Antonio's focaccia recipe is light and tasty as a prelude to some of the most authentic Italian dishes you can find in the OC.

Rumari takes pride in using only the best seafood available on its menu to create delicious risotto, pasta, and grilled fish. They are famous for many dishes from Black Linguine with Shrimp & Clams, to scrumptious Risotto Di Mare. Vegetarians love their delicious Penne Arrabbiata, and a good choice to start is always the fresh Asparagus with shaved Parmigiano Reggiano, with or without pancetta. Love vino? They have a good selection of California and Italian red and white wines for every distinguished palate. Love the beach? Come to Ristorante Rumari in Laguna for a 'Beachy-Italian' experience! Waves & Wine...pairs wonderfully!
